Complete list of 2000s American detective shows

Below is a list of American detective series from the 2000s. This includes series that started prior to 2000 and continued into the decade, as well as shows that started in the 2000s and continued into the 2010s and beyond. It currently includes anything that can be considered a crime series, a crime drama, or a mystery series.

Eventually, I hope to reorganize this list more chronologically rather than alphabetically, and to add more details about each show.
